|On Thursday, March 25th at 12PM PST//3PM EST//8PM CET, The Ocean will host a special livestream show, featuring a performance of 2018’s Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic in its entirety! The Ocean comments: “We will be performing ‘Phanerozoic I’ in its entirety on Thursday, March 25, 8PM CET – streamed live from Pier2, a shipyard in the port of Bremen, Germany.
Please join to make this evening special – it will be a show without any audience in the live room. We’ll be playing for you guys at your homes, wherever they are.
After more than a year of absence from playing music, we’re stoked to be getting back together to rehearse and perform – even more so, because we have a new space which we are currently transforming into our own recording studio. This is the beginning of a new era for us. We’ve battled against the inertia of 2020 with writing a whole bunch of new material, and the result is that we’ve got 2 new albums ready to record once the construction work is done.
For now, there are no plans to make this available online after the event, nor to do this again, so don’t miss out on this.
If this goes well, we‘ll promise to do something for ‘Phanerozoic II‘ a bit later in the year. ;)”

Last year, The Ocean released the follow-up to Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic: Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic – the band’s most successful album to-date, with the highest chart entries in their history (including a phenomenal Top 10 entry in the Official German Album Charts!). Tracked in Iceland, Spain and Germany and produced by esteemed studio guru Jens Bogren, Phanerozoic II is underpinned by some of the most imaginative and challenging music that The Ocean have made yet. Divided into two sections – Mesozoic and Cenozoic – the album once again showcases the detail and depth that have become two of The Ocean‘s most enduring trademarks.
